Good food is worth a thousand words—sometimes more. In My Family Recipe, a writer shares the story of a single dish that's meaningful to them and their loved ones.
As a cookbook author, I make a living translating the work of the kitchen to the page. In a very real way, my livelihood rests on the power of the written recipe. And yet, when I’m being fully honest, I know that the best way to learn to cook is in the kitchen, watching someone else brown the onions, measure out flour (or not, as is often the case), and fold dough just so. It is there, most often next to a family member or other beloved person, that the craft and pleasures of cooking are passed down through the generations.
